    I know tmo prepaid works with the nexus one, but could somebody who uses prepaid clarify whether you need to make sure data is turned off? (by using a program like APNDroid) :thinking:

    APNDroid does work.

    I thought tmo only has prepaid voice and not data. I went with AT&T prepaid because of that.

    Same here. If anyone knows how to get prepaid data with T-Mobile, I'd like to know about it. I'm using my T-Mobile nexus one on the AT&T network prepaid, so only get 2G speeds, but that's fine with me as it helps limit my data use.

    I also only get Edge. If TMo came out with prepaid data would you sell your phone and get the TMo version?

    There is no prepaid data with T-Mobile. I think they used to offer that with the sidekick only, but don't offer that any longer. You can get post-paid data with no contract (Even More Plus), but not PAYG.

    Why not go with a non-contract plan?

    Even More Plus Unlimited Talk + Text + Web

    I have the same thing as Talderon, except I have the 500 minutes plan, which is 69.99.

    I'm still looking for a prepaid plan myself - I was in the UK recently, and for 10 pounds, I purchased a prepaid sim and then used 5 pounds of the 10 pound credit to activate a 1 month / 1gb wireless plan. This was on TMO! In fact I'm so disgusted with what I pay now in the US I'm thinking of dropping my nexus one's plan entirely and just going with prepaid voice.

    Heck if they just let me go prepaid on voice and gave me flat rate data, that would be fine too.

    I bought it through Google and since I'm not on a contract it didn't give me an option to insure it..

    7/15/10 - 8/14/10 Monthly Charges: $68.73
    Its almost always $68.73, sometimes a couple cents different.

    What exactly does their insurance cover though? HTC covers is as is, so I'm just curious as to if its worth it.

    I mean, $4.79/month is cheap as hell anyways..

    Just an fyi, you can use Google Voice and save $10 a month by removing txt from your account.

    It's probably best to evaluate how much you use pic and vid messages. If it's only a handful of times a month you're better off using emails and facebook for pic/vid sending and save $10/mo.

    Does Yahoo allow you to send MMS?
